I sewed 2 of the long rows last night and the bottom right corner.   My 2 friends and I had fun yesterday catching up on 58 years of our lives as well as '3 heads are better than 1 or 2' when figuring out a lot of the details of our years together in 5th -7th grade.  We went to the old grade school, now used for many other purposes, all education related.  The new school has been built less than a quarter of a mile away.  The people working in the building were all so nice to us and let us explore the classrooms and the community room.  They even seemed to enjoy three elderly women reminiscing their childhoods.  We went by the apt. building our Ohio friend had lived in and past the farmhouse my other friend lived in.  My old house has been torn down.  It was a wonderful day!

What a fun day that was! Sometimes it is great taking a walk down memory lane and it certainly seems like this was one of those times. The quilt is coming along nicely!

Glad you enjoyed your visit. Some days I wish I could go back to a quieter time and relive some of the things over. The quilt will be great when finished. With the rain today hopefully you have the time to get it sewn. Chris

I am wondering who those "3 elderly women" you took along with the three of you were!

I enjoy reunions also... especially with those that you have not seen in so many years. You do feel young again for a little while ... Right ?

Sounds like you had a great time. It is fun going over the silly things we girls did back in school days.

Love the quilt as well.
